Course summary

Course description

  • Learn how to design and deliver effective career guidance to make a genuine difference to people’s lives
  • Gain your masters degree alongside a high-quality, nationally recognised professional award, the Qualification in Career Development
  • Achieve high professional standards: this programme is run in association with the Career Development Institute
  • Hone your practical skills and gain fresh perspectives on relevant work-based placements
  • Conduct your own research project on a theme which matches your professional interests and ambitions
  • Draw on the expertise of our International Centre for Guidance Studies, a world-leading centre which is helping shape the future of the career development profession
  • Learn from an enthusiastic and experienced team of staff who are recognised as thought leaders and influencers in this field
  • Enjoy maximum flexibility: take this programme on a full-time or part-time basis so that you can fit your studies around your other commitments.

Our MA Careers Education and Coaching provides an ideal stepping stone for anyone seeking to enter the career development profession. It should be especially valuable for recent graduates who have studied subjects such as Education, Sociology, Psychology and Social Work and for individuals who are already employed in a variety of relevant roles and settings.

This course brings together a highly regarded masters qualification and initial professional training in career guidance. If you are studying on a full-time basis, it means you can achieve both in just one year. Your studies will incorporate the Qualification in Career Development (QCD) which is awarded by the Career Development Institute (CDI) and is the premier route to achieving registered career professional status.

Our MA Careers Education and Coaching provides a solid preparation for anyone wishing to progress to a role such as careers adviser in schools, colleges, universities and local authorities or a careers leader in schools and colleges of further education. The skills you develop will also be invaluable for roles in private and sector based organisations offering career guidance and development activities in community and work-based settings. Examples include human resource development and talent management. Our graduates have also been recruited to roles such as Enterprise adviser, widening participation practitioners and researchers.
